This coastal city is best known as a surfers' paradise, and it's also heaven for dogs. (Only stands to reason -- the most famous pet detective IS Ace Ventura!) With a marvelous year-round climate, here life is a beach for pets... literally, as Hollywood Beach, Seaside Park, Marina Park Beach, Harbor Cove Beach, Surfer's Point, virtually all the coastline from Calabasas to Goleta allows dogs on leash with pet parents or sitters; several are off-leash destinations, too. Some beaches even provide self-serve pet wash stations. Dog sitters also flock to Ventura's two off-leash parks, the well-established Camino Real Park and Arroyo Verde Park. Click on DogVacay.com to find reliable pet sitting and home dog boarding.
With an ultra-laidback population of 100,000 or so including pet sitters, Ventura seemingly embraces dogs and pet sitting in as many ways. There's the annual Pooch Parade & Pet Expo in mid-July; a virtual parade of pets; frequent dog-friendly shopping centers (two); restaurants (dozens) and stores (hundreds) that accept four-legged friends and dog sitters. Dog-friendly hotels welcome pets with cookies and collapsible bowls. Only historic landmarks such as the Majestic Ventura theater downtown and Mission San Buenaventura say no to Fido and their dog sitting hosts. Ventura's connection to preferred home dog boarding and pet sitting services is DogVacay.com.
